Reading The Bible - how where when?

Girls, I need your help with my Preach for the Word and Worship event
7.30pm Saturday 19th March.

I'll be talking about us flourishing and growing as Christian women - and part of that is us personally reading the Bible. SO...what are your tips, routines, hints? How do YOU read the Bible? Where? When?
I'd love to hear your stories - things that help you and things that hinder.
Oh yes, and remember there's no condemnation!!!
This is an area of following Jesus where many of us can feel guilt because it can be really hard to regularly spend time reading the Bible and praying. It's hard!
But one of the things I want to say on Saturday is that there is GRACE , not guilt; and we can help one another in this!
So please leave a comment or email me and I'll include your stories - and help eachother

Remember to tell your friends and other women you meet - flyers are available at Kerith reception and you can read more information online on our page of the Kerith website. Let's do all we can to make sure that all women know about this evening.
I really believe it's going to be a great event for ALL WOMEN - all ages, all stages of our Christian lives - hope to see YOU there too! x


Hey!I find that reading my bible in the bath, or if I'm having a shower I'll read my bible for 5/10 minutes after the shower. xx

I use YouVersion on my iTouch & read the one day daily devotional in bed as soon as I wake up. This means I don't forget to do it and it sets me up for the day. I generally read the whole chapter instead of just taking the one verse it highlights.

I sometimes read the verse that's been highlighted that day just before I go to sleep at night. In the past it's helped have a great & peaceful night's sleep.

From time to time I also enjoy picking up my 'proper' & favourite Bible (the one with real pages!) and reading about characters, recently Abraham, Noah & Joshua. I'm just about to start Ruth.

It's not always easy to decide to read my Bible but it's always more rewarding than the DVD or TV programme option :0)

I downloaded a daily bible andriod app. I love it! Everyday I get new scriptures some long some only a couple of verses. I find I look at it serveral times throughout the day, which I really benefit from. I find it does actually make me think about what God may be saying to me.

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

Not the Summer I'd Planned

"Life's detours means  God wants you to run right into His arms  so He can reconstruct your heart"  Ann Voskamp
Well, let's just say that it's not been the summer I thought I was going to have!!! 
I'm so grateful we had our relaxing holiday in the sunshine
I'm so grateful it's summer time, and therefore not so many work commitments
I'm so grateful for my family being around
I'm so grateful for a wonderful and kind church family

If I was going to have an accident slip over on the back door my wedges...feeding the dogs.. and dislocate and fracture my ankle...then I'm so glad I was at home with family around and with access to swift expert medical help.

The accident was so sudden and it was immediately obvious that I couldn't sort it on my own! I'm pretty squeamish so I'll save you the details, but the angle of my foot prompted me to say out loud "I've just done something really bad".

Funny isn't it, when yo…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
